Last week, the Oakland Raiders surprised many of the naysayers–including this one. From the start of their battle with San Diego until the end, the Raiders played so well that many left game concluding that they ‘should have’ won. Some have even considered the loss a victory of some sort.
One person not looking at it that way is Raiders’ head coach Tom Cable. “We have nothing to be confident about other than our effort Monday night,” said Cable on Friday to reporters. The key word from that statement is “effort.” There’s nothing in that statement about a win of any sort.
